TWO FOR THE MONEY

JEREMY PIVEN (Jerry) was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and an Emmy Award this year for his portrayal of Ari Jacobs, a slick hard-talking agent who is the head of an up-and-coming actors' troupe in HBO's critically acclaimed original series Entourage. Dark and controversial, the series focuses on the under-explored side of life in Hollywood.

Piven was recently nominated by the Drama League for the 2005 Distinguished Performance Honor for his role as Tom in Neil LaBute's off-Broadway hit Fat Pig costarring Keri Russell and Andrew McCarthy.

This year, he will star in the comedy Lucky 13, Scott Marshall's directorial debut about the competitive world of lavish bar mitzvahs. That film, which recently won the Audience Award at the 2005 Comedy Arts Festival, also stars Garry Marshall and Jami Gertz.

Piven has appeared in more than 40 films, including Chasing Liberty, Scary Movie 3, Runaway Jury, Old School, Serendipity, Black Hawk Down, Very Bad Things, Rush Hour 2 and The Family Man.

In television he was a regular on the series Cupid and Ellen. He also appeared on The Larry Sanders Show and the made-for-television movie Don King: Only in America.

Piven was born and raised in Chicago where his parents founded the Piven Theatre Workshop. His father, Byrne, taught many of today's top Hollywood talent including John and Joan Cusack, Rosanna Arquette and Aidan Quinn. Jeremy Piven is very active with the Theatre, returning to Chicago frequently to keep his father's dream alive.
